In my latest project submission <>, I
had to try three times for a valid system name. On the project registration
page <>, the description for the
Short/system name is simply "(used in URLs, mailing lists names, etc.)". This
does not describe what is actually allowed for the system name.

Please add a description to the system name, such as the following:
"alphanumeric, '-', and '_'; max 20 chars" (or whatever the actual restriction
is). This would help eliminate trial and error when choosing a system name, or
at least keep the trial and error in the user's brain.

Thanks. (Also, is this the right place to report this? Sorry if it's not.)
